Legacy Autobody Group announced they have added collision repair centers in Kutztown and Stroudsburg, Pa. to bring their total number of locations to six in eastern Pennsylvania.
The 9,000 square foot collision repair center in the Kutztown market is located at 15827 Kutztown Road (Route 222) in Maxatawny, Pa. The facility was acquired on December 28, 2018 and previously operated as Engelman’s Auto Body. The center will be managed by Paul Angstadt. The shop will be operated as CARSTAR Kutztown – Legacy Autobody.
The new Stroudsburg collision repair facility is located at 301 North 9th Street and previously operated as a new car dealership that did not have a body shop. Legacy plans to officially open the new 14,000 square foot collision repair facility in March 2019. The new facility will be operated as CARSTAR Stroudsburg 9th St – Legacy Autobody.
Legacy Autobody Group was formed in 2017 through the merger of two family-owned multiple shop operations, Scott’s Collision Centers and Duncan Autobody. Legacy’s existing four locations have over $12.5 million in annual sales and 70+ teammates.
The merger of the two family-owned multiple shop operations is the initial part of a plan to expand its collision repair services in Eastern Pennsylvania and Western New Jersey. Both Scott’s Collision Centers and Duncan Autobody were founded in the early 1970s and have thrived since that time due to a reputation for high quality and superior customer service.
Legacy’s other locations include: CARSTAR Easton- Scott’s Collision; CARSTAR Stroudsburg- Scott’s Collision; CARSTAR Allentown- Duncan Autobody; CARSTAR Quakertown- Duncan Autobody.
“We’re excited to expand Legacy’s collision repair services with our new locations into Kutztown and downtown Stroudsburg,” said Matt Dewalt, co-owner of the Legacy Autobody Group. “We look forward to providing customers in these communities with the high quality, OEM approved repairs that Legacy Autobody Group is known for in the Lehigh Valley and Poconos.”
Adding additional locations in the Lehigh Valley and Pocono regions of Eastern Pennsylvania is a key component of the Legacy Autobody Group’s growth plans for the future. The firm is actively looking for acquisition opportunities in neighboring communities to those it already serves.
